Buffalo String Works Benefit Concert
[BENEFIT CONCERT] In an era when funding for arts education is continually diminished, the value of an organization like Buffalo String Works can hardly be overstated: The grassroots, musician-led organization provides instrumental instruction to underserved students, particularly to refugee communities on Buffalo’s West Side. There’s a benefit concert this Saturday, February 17, to raise funds to support that mission at 500 Seneca Street, with performances by David and Phillip Ying of the Ying Quartet, the BPO’s Andrea Cone, Kyle Resnick of the National (that’s right), and Buffalo String Works directors Virginia Barron and Yuki Numata Resnick. At $60 for an extraordinary cause, great music, and a reception replete with food and drink, it’s a bargain. Find out more at buffalostringworks.org.
